mister_eff Hey Ron,
My console looks like yours. It's not ideal, but I just run the cord off to the side. I find that the cover doesn't really pinch it. I haven't thought about it too much, but an alternative would be nice.

R to the O to the N and then
I say Swanson's got swag the size of Big Ben clock!

Here is a photo from my vehicle. My center console doesn't look like yours :( Sorry about the finger that got in the way. The area right below my cable looks like a groove however that is where the lid handle snaps in and pinches the usb cable.

Run it out the back side.

Does anyone have suggestions or a work-around for this? I just upgraded from a Mazda 3, which had a groove for an aux cable right under the area where the console snaps in and it was great design.

I'm just hard to please I suppose lol any suggestions would be great :)
There is a groove - I can post a picture if you'd like...
